1975 Mercedes Benz 240D LWB (W115)

SOLD £3,809

Rare 2.4 diesel LWB automatic limo with seating for upto 8 passengers; in storage for many years, will need some recommissioning, showing just 79,792 miles

Dating from June 1975 this W115 series 240 Diesel ‘Lang’ model is the rarer LWB (long wheel base) version (Vin No. W115.119XXX), one of just 3,655 built between 1973 and 1976 and comes to us from a deceased estate. The car has been with the vendors for some 24 years seeing limited use until ill-health forced the car into storage along with others in his collection in 2010 when the car was last on the road and MOT’d. Arriving to us in a non-running state straight from storage, confirmed by the fine layer of dust atop its boxy proportions the car appears in sound order. There is no battery and we have not attempted to start it given its been stood for so many years. However, these old MB diesels are well known to be bullet proof and shouldn’t take an oily hand long to get her running. Showing just 79,792 miles on the clock, which if genuine, is remarkably low for one of these ‘proper’ W115 series Mercs a look at its MOT history shows little use between Mots prior to mothball. The interior finished in blue MB-Tex has worn well and looks to permit 8 including the driver with the folding set of additional seats in use. The 240D’s history file includes only its V5C and is offered here without Reserve.
